Nathaniel Sparhawk, the emigrant ancestor of all 
bearing that name in the United States, settled in Cam- 
bridge, Massachusetts, in 1638.^ This is the generally 
accepted date, although Mr. Paige gives, in his History 
of Cambridge, 1636. The birthplace of Nathaniel Spar- 
hiiwk was in Dedham, Essex Co., Enghind, and his par- 
ents were Lewis and Elizal)eth (Bayning) Sparhawk. At 
the time of bis coming to New England, he was in the 
fortieth year of his age. He was made freemau. May 23, 
1639, aud a deacon of the (;hnrch of Cambridge. Three 
years Liter he was deputy to the General Court, from 1642 
to 1647. In May, 1645, he was one of "a committee to 
consider of some way whereby y* negative vote may be 
tempered, y* justice may have free passage." 

From various sources we learn that he was a man of 
large property, most of which was in real estate within or

near Cambridge.^ His residence was on the easterly side 
of Brighton street, between Mount Auburn street and 
Harvard square. In 1642, he is represented as owning 
five houses and about five hundred acres of land. 

By his wife Mary (whose maiden name is unknown), 
he had five or more children. Of these, the eldest, Na- 
thaniel, was born in England, and probably all but the 
youngest.^ The following is the list of his children in the 
probable order of their birth. 

1 Nathaniel, ; m. Patience Newman, Oct. 3, 1649; d. Jan., 

1687. 

2 Anne, ; m., 1st, Deacon Jno. Cooper; 2nd, James Con- 

vers, sr., of Woburn, Mass. 

3 Mary, ; m. Capt. William Symmes. 

4 Esther, ; m. Samuel Adams, May 7, 1668. 

5 Samuel, b. Aug. 27, 1638 ; d. Aug. 13, 1639. 

Mrs. Mary Sparhawk died in Cambridge, Mass., Janu- 
ary 25, 1643-4. Her husband soon after married again 
and by his second wife, Katherine, had 

6 Ruth, b. April 12, 1645 ; d. May 7, 1645. 

7 Elizabeth, b. , 1646; d. unm. Nov. 9, 1692. 

Nathaniel Sparhawk, sr., died June 28, 1647, and his 
wife, Mrs. Katherine Sparhawk, July 5 of the same yea'r. 

At the time of Nathaniel Spnrhawk's death, we are told 
by Paige, in his History of Cambridge, that about a thou- 
sand acres were sold from the estate and that there was 
still remaining "a large quantity of land on the south side 
of the river (now Brighton district), a part of which still 
remains in possession of his descendants." This shows a 
large increase in his real estate during the last five years 
of his life.

Priscilla (Hemans) Sparhawk, married Elizabeth, only re- 
maining daughter of Sir William and Lady Mary (Hirst) 
Pepperrell, in Kittery, Maine, June 10, 1742. Their chil- 
dren were : 

125 William Pepperrell, bapt. July 10, 1743; d. young.

130 Samuel Hirst, b. 1752; m. in London; d. 1787. 

131 Mary Pepperrell, b. 1754; m. Chas. Jarvis, M.D. ; d.l815. 

Nathaniel Sparhawk, sr., was a merchant in Boston at 
the time of his marriage, but after that he lived in Kitteiy. 
(His father-in-law had built there the elegant mansion now 
known as the "Sparhawk house" for his daughter Madam 
Sparhawk.) Mr. Sparhawk retained an interest in his 
business in Boston, and also had commercial interests in 
Kittery. In his later years he was conspicuous as a Judge 
and Councillor. The elegant dining hall, in the Sparhawk 
house, was used as "the Council Chamber," where the 
Councillors met. This house, now in perfect preservation, 
is the finest specimen of the architecture of the period 
(1742) remaining in that vicinity. Of the marriage of 
Nathaniel Sparhawk and Elizabeth Pepperrell, the Rev. 
John Sparhawk, in his memorandum book, writes as fol- 
lows : 

"My dear and only brother, Nath'l, was married at Kit- 
tery to Miss Elizabeth Pepperrell, the only daughter of the 
then Hon'ble William Pepperrell, Esq., now Sir William 
Pepperrell, Bart., on June 10, 1742." 

Mrs. Elizabeth (Pepperrell) Sparhawk was, through 
her mother, a great granddaughter of the famous Chief 
Justice Samuel Sewall, and thus a descendant as Avell of 
the Dummers, Hirsts, and many more distinguished fami- 
lies. She carried herself always with a true spirit of no- 
bility. Her last years were spent with her daughter Mrs. 
Charles Jarvis, in Boston, at which time she was active in 
all good words and works. She died in Boston in 1797, 
leaving only her two oldest sons (Nathaniel and William) 
and her daughter Mrs. Jarvis ;^ her husband and the others 
havinsT gone before her.

GENEALOGY OF THE SPARHAWK FAMILY. 17 

Mrs. Priscilla (Hemaus) Sparhawk, after the death of 
her husband, married Jonathan Waldo, and her will is re- 
corded in the probate office of Alfred, Maine. In it she 
bequeaths to her son John, "all that wrought plate which 
he has already received," also to her son Nathaniel "all 
the plate of which I shall die possessed, or shall not have 
disposed of and delivered in my life time to those to whom 
the same may be conveyed." She wills to her daughter- 
in-law Elizabeth (Pepperrell) Sparhawk her "Suit of Mas- 
querade Damask," in return or offset for a "suit of silk 
cloths" given to her daughter-in-law Jane (Porter) Spar- 
hawk. 

They are to have her wearing apparel equally divided 
between them. Her sons Rev. John Sparhawk of Salem, 
Mass., and Hon. Nathaniel Sparhawk of Kittery, Maine, 
to have her estate, real and personal, divided between 
them. This was dated Kittery, Maine, July 12, 1749, 
and probated Mar. 31, 1755. It is probable that she was 
residing with her son Nathaniel. 

This is further changed by a codicil in which she gives 
one hundred pounds old tenor, or the value thereof in 
other money to her granddaughter Priscilla Sparhawk. 

44 Hannah Cooper, the daughter of Samuel and 
Hannah (Hastings) Cooper, married Edmund Frost, Feb. 
1, 1710-11. Cambridge, Mass.

William Pepperrell Sparhawk became chief heir of his 
grandfather (Sir William Pepperrell), on condition that at 
twenty-one years of age he should drop the name Spar- 
hawk and be known as Sir William Pepperrell. 

His grandfather's wishes were respected, and eight years 
after his grandfather's decease(1767) , he assumed the title. ^ 
He has been known as Sir William 2(1, and also in the family 
as "Young Sir William." He graduated from Harvard 
College in 1766, and was later a Councillor, and Manda- 
mus Councillor. A royalist, he fled to England with his 
wife and children, also his wife's parents and kindred in 
1775. His wife died on the voyage and was buried at Hali- 
fax, N. S., October 8th. Her four children were born in 
Kittery, Maine. Of her character, we can judge somewhat, 
by a letter written by her brother-in-law, Samuel Hirst 
Sparhawk to his father, of which we will transcribe a part 
further on. 

iParsons' "Life of Sir William Pepperrell." 



36 GENEALOGY OF THE SPARHAWK FAMILY. 

" Young Sir William " received a great deal of attention 
in England, and was painted by West in a large group, 
which represented him as he was when he presented his 
brother tories of America to the King, craving the King's 
most gracious favor. ^ He led a remarkably useful life, was 
distinguished by a love of patriotism and charity toward all 
men. He died in 1816, one year after his brother Nathaniel, 
who had sojourned awhile in England after " young Sir 
William," became a permanent resident there. The most 
complete account of his life, which we cannot transcribe in 
our limited space, is to be found in Sabine's "Loyalists of 
the American Revolution" to which we have already re- 
ferred our readers. 

129 Andrew Pepperrell Sparhawk, the fifth son 
of Nathaniel and Elizabeth (Pepperrell) Sparhawk, mar- 
ried Miss Turner, the daughter of an army officer in Bos- 
ton, Sept. 5, 1775. He went to England with his brother 
William, and died there, without children, in 1783. His 
portrait, painted by Copley, is in existence in England. It 
is owned by a lineal descendant of his niece. Lady Palmer, 
Sir Archdale Palmer of AVanlip Hall, Leicestershire, 
England. 

130 Samuel Hirst Sparhawk, the sixth and young- 
est son of Nathaniel and Elizabeth (Pepperrell) Sparhawk, 
went to England sometime later than his brothers William 
and Andrew and was married thei-e. His portrait by Cop- 
ley is in the possession of Sir Archdale Palmer. 

His daughter was :

GENEALOGY OF THE SPARHAWK FAMILY. 37 

Before leaving for England, which step was the result 
of his being an ardent Loyalist, he wrote to his father the 
following letter, the original of which is now in the posses- 
sion of the writer. 

Hon**, and dear Sir : 

I have not til now had an opportunity of writing you 
for some time past, owing to the communication hetwixt 
us and the country being cut ojff; and am now obliged to 
confine myself to a few particulars as letters undergo an 
inspection of committees, etc., etc. 

Since my last you have undoubtedly been made ac- 
quainted with the melancholy event of Lady Pepperrell's 
death, which has been a most trying, piercing trouble to 
us all, but especially to my poor broken hearted brother 
Sir William who is day and night weeping for his dear 
departed Object ; and can any one who knew her wonder? 
Surely no : for she deserved the esteem of every one : 
her sweetness of disposion and obliging behaviour added 
to every amiable quality won the regard and attention of 
all around her, and I must say as far as I have ever been 
able to discover if there have been any exceptions to this, 
it nuist have been owing to themselves and not to her ; 
she often did kindnesses, but she injured no one : she 
was too harmless and innocent, and I cou'd not love any- 
body who I tho't didn't love her, but upon the principle 
enjoined by a perfect character, to "love our enemies." 
She was a worthy charming woman indeed ! who can think 
of her and not be distressed. I'm sure I mourn my loss 
most sincerly and its universal among all who were ac- 
quainted with her character. I trust she is now made 
happy in heaven thro' the great atonement for sin by Jesus 
Christ 

With duty and Love I am y'' affectio'^ Son

ried, first, Sarah Champney (Judge Lowell's mother) and 
second, Mrs. Elizabeth (Cutts) Whipple, the widow of

born in Newbury, June 17, 1743, and took his first degree 
in Harvard College in 1760. He was admitted to practice 
law in 1763. He held many distinguished positions and 
was honored alike by young and old. A very valuable 
account of his life, and of that of his son Charles, has been 
written by his granddaughter, Mrs. Mary (Lowell) Put- 
nam. To this we have already referred, and we will not 
attempt to do more than advise our readers to read that at

GENEALOGY OF THE SPARHAWK FAMILY. 47 

mother was Sarah Tyler, daughter of John Tyler and 
granddaughter of Thomas and Miriam (Simpkins) Tyler, 
the ancestors of the Boston family of that name.^ Her 
father, Rev. Ellis Gray, was son of Edward and Hannah 
(Ellis) Gray, and colleague pastor of the Second Church 
in Boston. He was very nearly related to Hon. Harrison 
Gray Otis, and many other distinguished Bostonians. 

217 Reverend Thoraas Gary, the brother of Samuel 
Gary, was graduated at Harvard College in 1761. He mar- 
ried May 25, 1775, Esther Carter of Newburyport, Mass., 
a daughter of Nathaniel and Abigail (Beck) Carter. She 
died May 28, 1779, and he died Nov. 24, 1808. 

Reverend Thomas Gary was married twice and had one 
son, by his first marriage, who died unmarried in early 
manhood. His name was Thomas Graves Gary. The name 
of his second wife we have thus ftir failed to find. His wife 
Esther was a sister of Mrs. Edward Cutts, of Portsmouth, 
N. H., and there are, through that source, in the posses- 
sion of the writer, a number of his printed sermons and a 
quaint portrait of Rev. Thos. Gary, executed, evidently, by 
an amateur. Also a mourning ring in memory of Mrs. 
Esther Gary, died in 1779.

Rev. Charles Lowell's life has been so graphically pic- 
tured by his daughter, Mrs. Mary Lowell Putnam, to 
which we have already referred, that we will not attempt 
in our brief record to give more than an outline. He was 
born on August 15, 1782, in Boston, Mass. He received his 
first education at the grammar school in Roxbury, where 
his parents were then living. He entered Harvard Col- 
lege as a member of the sophomore class in 1797, having 
previously attended Phillips Academy in Andover, Mass. 
He took his degree on July 16, 1800. He studied law 
under his brother for one year at the desire of his father.

Finding it distasteful, he was not opposed in his wish tc 
enter the ministry. He completed his studies in Edin- 
burgh and travelled extensively in Europe. His wife was 
a great-great-granddaughter of Robert and Mary (Hoel) 
Cutts of Kittery, Maine, through her mother. The ac- 
count of his ministrations as clergyman can only be alluded 
to here. He was not only successful but well-beloved. 
All his children who have attained to years of maturity, 
have achieved distinction, the most notable being: his 
youngest son James Russell Lowell, the famous poet, lit- 
terateur, statesman and orator. 

On March 30, 1850, Mrs. Harriett B. S. Lowell was 
suddenly taken away from her family by death. She was 
much beloved, and it is said that her youngest sou inher- 
ited his poetical talent from her. Mr. Lowell survived her 
eleven years, dying on January 10, 1861.

Lewis Tappan, son of Benjamin and Sarah (Homes) 
Tappan, born in Northampton, May 23, 1788, was a grand- 
son of Rev. Benjamin and Eliza (Marsh) Toppan, and 
great grandson of Samuel and Abigail (Wigglesworth) 
Toppan. His famous ancestor, Rev. Michael Wiggles- 
worth, married Mrs. Sybil (Sparhawk) Avery (see earlier 
pages). Lewis Tappan was descended from Rev. Michael 
and Martha (Mudge) Wigglesworth. Rev. Benjamin 
Tappan first changed the name to Tappan which spelling 
his descendants all use. Lewis T. was educated at home, 
and at fifteen found a position with Mr. T. Wiggins, a 
prominent merchant in Boston, and remained with him 
until he became of age. He then accepted an ofi'er from 
Mr. George Searle (nephew of Mr. Stephen Higginson), 
and they went into business together, under the Hrm name 
of "Tappan & Searle," India goods. When he mtirried, 
at the age of twenty-five, he had acquired $80,000. From 
1828 until 1841 he was a partner with his brother Arthur 
Tappan in New York, under the firm name of Arthur 
Tappan & Co. His brother established "The Journal of 
Commerce" in 1828, and after a year's trial sold it to

Lewis Tappan, who owned it awhile and sold it again. 
Lewis Tappan was one of the pioneers of the Anti-Slav- 
ery movement and an organizer of " The Anti-Slavery So- 
ciety." His house, No. 40 Kose street, New York, was 
mobbed July 9, 1834; doors and windows were broken 
open and the furniture and bedding thrown into the street 
and burned. The portrait of Dr. William Aspinwall by 
Gilbert Stuart, because of its resemblance to Washington, 
was not destroyed. Lewis Tappan was one of the foun 
ders of "The American Missionary Society" and later be- 
came its treasurer. When nearly eighty years of age, he 
wrote a life of his brother Arthur Tappan. He died in 
Brooklyn, N. Y., June 21, 1873. This was twenty years 
after the death of his wife which occurred Mar. 24, 1853,

John Sparhawk, sr., died May 28, 1889, m Philadel- 
phia, Pa. The following notice of his life is taken from 
" The Evening Telegraph" of that city. 

The funeral services of the late John Sparhawk were 
held yesterday at his late residence. No. 3809 Chestnut 
street, Philadelphia. A very large number of people 
were in attendance. The services were conducted by 
Rev. Henry C. McCook, D.D., assisted by Rev. Stephen 
W. Dana, D.D. The pall-bearers were B. B. Comegys, 
Lemuel Coffin, Hon. Robert N. Wills(m, Dr. Charles 
Stewart Wurtz, Gordon Monges and Dr. Oscar H. Allis. 
The music was rendered by a quartette from the Orpheus 
Club. 

For over fifty years John Sparhawk had bee»i connected 
with the active business and religious life of Philadelphia. 



72 GENEALOGY OF THE SPARHAWK FAMILY. 

He died at the age of seventy-one. He was born in Phil- 
adelphia, Nov. 9, 1818, on Chestnut street above Front. 
He was a grandson of Dr. John Sparhawk who, along 
with other representative Philadelphians, signed the fa- 
mous " Non-importation Articles" against Great Britain in 
1761, a copy of which is framed and hung in Independ- | 
ence Hall, and which has been often regarded as the father 
of the Declaration of Independence. He was a descend- 
ant of Rev. John Sparhawk, one of the early Puritan pas- | 
tors of the historic First church of Salem, Mass. 

He began his business life early and soon rose to be a 
partner in the old dry goods house of Atwood, White & 
Co., afterwards White & Sparhawk. Shortly after the 
war the firm, having lost heavily by reason of the failure 
of their southern trade to pay the obligations due the 
house, went out of mercantile business. He then estab- I 
lished a law and collection office at 400 Chestnut street, in 
which business he was engaged at the time of his decease. 

Mr. Sparhawk was one of the organizers and charter 
members of the Young Men's Christian Association of 
Philadelphia. He was vice president of the Philadelphia 
Bible Society, of which he had been a manager for nearly 
forty years. During the war he spent a portion of every 
day in the hospitals ministering to the wounded, attend- 
ing to the burying of the dead and corresponding with the 
relatives of sick and dying soldiers. He was appointed 
by the governor slate inspector of hospitals, a position 
which he held without compensation until the close of the 
war. 

In his religious life especially, however, he had shown 
unubual fervor. He was identified with the establishment 
of the first church mission enterprise in West Philadel- 
})hia and at Tabor. At the time of the great revival in 
1857, he conducted religious services in Jayne's Hall, 



GENEALOGY OF THE SPARHAWK FAMILY. 73 

Seventh and Chestnut streets, and from then up to the 
outbreak of the war, he conducted special services among 
the firemen at their engine houses. He was an active 
teacher in Sunday schools from 1832 up to within three 
months of his death. He was a devoted supporter of the 
Rev. Albert Barnes, of the old First Presbyterian Church, 
of Washington Square, Philadelphia, under whose min- 
istry his religious life was developed. 

So catholic was his spirit, however, that up to within a 
short period of his death, he had occupied the position 
of superintendent of a Baptist Sunday school. He had 
also been very active as a visitor at the hospitals of the 
University of Pennsylvania. He conducted the famous 
litigation to restrain the running of the Sunday street 
cars, reported in the "Pennsylvania Supreme Court Re- 
ports" under the title of Sparhawk vs. the Union Passen- 
ger Railway. 

He was one of the handful of old and well-known Phil- 
adelphia business men who have survived the early years 
of the century in the business life of this community. 
His faculties were unimpaired to the day of his death and 
he died unexpectedly after a short ilhiess in the midst 
of his business and religious usefulness. He was a man 
of singular purity of character and of spotless integrity.

Mrs. Sparhawk, a woman of wonderful beauty of char- 
acter, survived her husband more than a decade, dying in 
Newton Centre, Mass., where her daughters still live. 
Her husband was born Octol)er 30, 1806, in Portsmouth, 
N. H. He was a generous-hearted boy, sensitive to the 
suiferings, not of human beings alone, but of all creatures. 
He was observant rather than communicative, but was 
keenly appreciative of wit and quick in perceptions of 
the ridiculous. Of quick and retentive memory, an exact 
scholar, he showed early that clearness of judgment and 
freedom from prejudice that marked him in later life. He 
graduated from Dartmouth College in 1828 and from there 
went to the Medical School at Harvard. He studied in 
the wards of the Massachusetts Hospital under the famous 
Dr. James Jackson. In after years this eminent physi- 



I 



80 GENEALOGY OF THE SPARHAWK FAMILY. 

cian showed his appreciation of his pupil's quick intuitions 
in regard to disease, his Iceenness of observation and re- 
search and that conscientiousness which made both his 
practice and his life a success in the highest sense of benefit 
to others. After finishing his medical studies Sparhawk 
expected to begin his studies in Boston or its neighbor- 
hood. And here the influence of his teacher, his friendship 
with young men of his profession, of whom the world has 
since heard much, would have given him advantages at the 
outset of his career and congenial companionship. But 
the illness of his father changed everything. Mr. Spar- 
hawk was ordered by Dr. Jackson to an inland climate, 
and the family went from Brookline to the little town of 
Conway, N. H., as they owned land there. Conway was 
not a resort in those days, it had not even expanded to 
suit the wants of summer visitors, and a greater change in 
the young man's prospects could hardly have taken place. 
But his duty and his wishes kept him with his father dur- 
ing the life of the latter. 

While living in Conway he married Elizabeth Camp- 
bell of Duns, Scothuid. A few years after his marriage 
he went for a time to Kittery, Maine. He thought of re- 
maining there and entered into negotiations for the Spar- 
hawk mansion (built by Sir William Pepperrell, for his 
daughter, the wife of Colonel Sparhawk). But the owner 
changed his price too often and the negotiations came to 
nothing. Soon after this the doctor moved to Amesbury, 
Mass., where he lived from that time, the spring of 1845, 
until 1872. In December, 1872, he moved to Newbury- 
port a town a few miles from Amesbury, at the mouth of 
the Meriimac river. In the May of 1874 he died there. 
Of his four children two died early ; the oldest child, his 
only son, at six and his second daughter a few weeks be- 
fore at the age of two, and two daughters outlive him. 



f 



GENEALOGY OF THE SPARHAWK FAMILY. 81 

The active part of his professional life was passed at 
Amesbury. He was a very hard worker, anxious to do 
his whole duty ; his reward lay in this and not in fame or 
self-aggrandizement. Wherever it was a question of duty 
to be done he seemed to feel as if every part belonged to 
him ; but when it came to the rewards, he was full ot the 
spirit of Whittier's lines : 

" What matter, I or they? 
Mine or another's clay? 
So the right word be said 
And life the sweeter made?" 

But his application to his profession was too intense and 
his skill in it too great, not to have made him known much 
more widely than he himself dreamed of being. And so 
he lived here for nearly a generation a life of ideal un- 
selfishness and devotion to the poor and suffering. In the 
burying ground in Amesbury there stands a simple shaft 
of Scotch granite on which it is written that it was ''erected 
oy the people of Amesbury and Salisbuiy" (then practi- 
cally one town). On this shaft is the name of Thomas 
Sparhawk, his age and the date of his death, and follow- 
ing this, the tribute of his townspeople: "The beloved 
physician." 

His father, Samuel Sparhawk, was born in October, 
1779. He showed early the bent of his character, being 
inclined to seriousness and of studious habits while at the 
same time he enjoyed the gayety of others. He was as a 
boy thoughtful for others to a remarkable degree and to 
his mother always showed a chivalrous courtesy and ten- 
derness. When quite a young man he became cashier of 
the bank at Portsmouth, N. H. He held this position for 
a number of years, for while here he married Elizabeth 
McKinstry, and in Portsmouth his three children, Oliver, 
Thomas and Elizabeth, were born. W^hen the youngest 
11 



82 GENEALOGY OF THE SPARHAWK FAMILY. 

was an infant he went to live in Concord where a l)etter 
position in the bank there had been offered to him. He 
lived in Concord nearly a score of years and held his phice 
as a cashier until the failure of his health led him to re- 
sign it. While here he also filled for about fifteen years 
the office of Secretary of State of New Hampshire, a post 
not unlike that of Lieut. Governor in Massachusetts. He 
was for a number of years on the board of directors of 
the State's Prison. While holding this place there oc- 
curred one of those incidents that over many elaborate de- 
tails of life show the stuff" of which a man is made. He 
was sent for one day post haste to the prison. There he 
found the other directors with the warden sitting in the 
directors' room which opened out upon the yard where 
the prisoners in flagrant rebellion were brandishing in the 
way of weapons whatever tools they could lay hands up- 
on and threatening with death whoever should attack them. 
The door from the directors' room into the yard was care- 
fully bolted, and the pale-faced officers sat in a terror that 
gave them small opportunity for consultation. A calmness 
seemed to enter the room with Mr. Sparhawk. He made a 
few inquiries into the cause of the rebellion, and then walk- 
ing steadily up to the door, ordered the warden to open it. 
The remonstrances of the others only made him repeat 
the order. The heavy door was opened, and refastened 
behind him, for the sight of the men in a fierceness and 
fury that was savagery would have made stouter hearts 
than theirs quail. At the opening of the door they all 
paused involuntarily with curiosity and that appreciation 
of courage which touches even brutes. With steady eyes 
and unhesitating step the director walked into the midst 
of them. " Put down your weapons, every man of you, 
and oo straight to your cells." This command uttered 
with the evenness of a perfect fearlessness, carried with it 



GENEALOGY OF THE SPARIIAWK FAMILY. 83 

all the force of impregnable authority. The men listened, 
their weapons still raised and poised, looked at him, slowly 
lowered them, and the next moment the amazed watchers 
in the room saw a file of conquered men marching quietly 
to their cells. In the shortest possible time they were 
locked in there. The rebellion was at an end. 

On leaving Concord Mr. Sparhawk again spent a win- 
ter in Portsmouth, and the following spring went to Brook- 
line, Mass. Here he lived until the doctor ordered him 
to be taken from the sea air. He then removed to Con- 
way, New Hampshire, where he owned a farm. And here 
in a few years he died leaving in many hearts the memory 
of a life remarkable in its purity of motive, its simplicity 
and strength. 

644 Elizabeth Sparhawk, daughter of Hon. Sam- 
uel and Elizal)eth (McKinstr}^) Sparhawk, married Edward 
Winslow, Esq., son of Isaac and Margaret (Blanchard) 
Winslow, Sept. 25, 1847. (He was a grandson of the 
Isaac Winslow, whose first wife was Elizabeth Sparhawk.) 
He died in Newton Centre, Mass., in 1883 (May 26). 
After his decease his widow continued to reside in Newton 
Centre. Her last days were passed with her nieces in the 
same town (children of Dr. Thomas Sparhawk) where on 
April 21, 1891, she passed away. The following beautiful 
account of her life appeared in "The Transcript" of Boston 
and as it is most accurate and comprehensive, we quote it 
in full as follows : 

"It is not often that the circle of the years unite, the vivacity of 
youth, the keen enjoyment of beauty in nature and the world, a zest 
in the simple things of daily life, with mature thought and a deep spir- 
itual life. But these gifts met in her. Her transition from gay to 
grave was like that from the sunshine to the shadows of a summer's 
day, alvs'ays with the consciousness of briglitness overhead. She was 
full of wit, and her unfailing sense of humor made her full of bright

and amusing anecdotes. Stories of old New England daj's and cus- 
toms were as fresh in lier mind as wlien she first knew them, Avhile 
any droll occurrence of to-day, or the ludicrous side of any scene, pre- 
sented itself to her invariably and was reproduced with a faithfulness 
that made it irresistible. 

But it was not these traits that made her beloved and honored by 
those who knew her. Her clear and quick understanding, her loyalty 
to those whom she loved, her unswerving fidelity to whatever she be- 
lieved right — the sense of strength in her very presence — these were the 
foundations of the attractiveness, enhanced by gifts and graces and 
by the simplicity of perfect unconsciousness. No one knowing the 
attachment from childhood between herself and her husband's sister 
could hold the friendship of women a myth. In the long years they 
spent together, until the recent death of the latter, they read and 
studied many things, historic stories, biographies, travels and es- 
pecially those relating to Bible lands and connected with sacred history ; 
and a few years ago the two took up the study of Hebrew that they 
might read at least passages in the Bible in the original. Yet so full 
was she of the best of youth and brightness of spirit that a good 
child's book, even of fairy stories, always interested her. 

She was born at Portsmouth, N. H., a descendant of the colonial 
family there and of John Sparhawk, the early minister of the old church 
of Salem, Mass. From him and from other ancestors no less earnest 
may have come the strength and fulness of her faith — as from a line 
of women of unusual energy and power in a time in this country 
when these qualities were not uncommon, there came her independence, 
her staying qualities, her unconsciousness of self, and that bright 
cheerfulness Avhich made the day seem sunnier, when she entered into 
it. And this sunshine was in her faith also ; wliatevcr came to her was 
sent ; her whole life in all its details Avas an illustration of the old 
hymn — 

"What God doth it is all well done; 
His will upright abiding. 
Since He has traced my course begun, 
I will go on confiding." 
In her gayety was the charm not only of real wit, but of a light- 
heartedness Avith the deepest foundations ; and in her very presence 
there came to one a new revelation of the strength and beauty of faith 
— a wonder if, in this age of doubt, a trust so absolute did not have 
its rich reward even in the eyes of men. For strength and peace, 
courage and power, all were hers, all made life a blessing to others, 
and now make her memory a plea for living near to heaven." 

The sketch was written by her niece Miss Frances Camp-

er of short stories. Chief among them may be mentioned 
"Elizabeth," published in "The New England Magazine." 
Also "A Lazy Man's Work, "Little Polly Blatchley," "A 
Chronicle of Conquest" and other volumes. Miss Spar- 
hawk has also a deep interest in work among the Indians.

Colonel Cutts graduated from Harvard College in 1823, 
and studied law with Hon. Jeremiah Mason. After his 
removal to Vermont he practised his profession for many 
years. 

During that time he was Judge of the Probate Court ; 
four years a member of the Vermont legislature ; three 
years senator, and until his death in 1875 was Vice Presi- 
dent, for Vermont, of the New Enghind Historical Gene- 
alogical Society. He delivered a good many addresses 
before various organizations, and contributed to the press.

He left an iin published novel in manuscript form entitled 
"Louisbourg," which as the title suggests had its origin in 
a study of that historic event. Mrs. Cutts survived her 
husband only four years, dying very suddenly in April, 
1879. She had been a woman of remarkal)le energy, 
and uprightness of character as well as of warm and be- 
nevolent heart. At the time of the purchase of "Mount 
Vernon" by the ladies of the Union she was Vice Regent 
for Vermont, and labored for this patriotic cause with her 
characteristic zeal and enthusiasm. After the death of 
her father she wrote a volume entitled "The Life and Times 
of VVm. Jarvis," Riverside Press. An edition of one 
thousand copies was published of this work, and copies of 
it are to be seen in the principal historical libraries. 

657 Elizabeth Bartlett Jarvis married David Ev- 
erett Wheeler, Esq., second son of John B. "Wheeler, Esq.,

having graduated from Dartmouth College in 1827, and 
spending a year at the Law School in Cambridge, Mass. 
In 1844 he was a member of the Assembly of New York 
and a member of the Board of Education of the city. He 
continued to reside there until his death.

class of 1833, and, after acquiring a medical education, be- 
came a clergyman in the Episcopal Church. He was es- 
tablished in 1846 and 1847 in Newfoundhmd. It was at 
that time he gathered the materials for his novel entitled 
"The New Priest of Conception Bay." This was issued 
in 1858, and again in 1863 was reissued, with illustrations 
by Darle3^ In 1860 he published a volume of poems en- 
titled "Fresh hearts that failed three thousand years ago." 
From 1869 to 1873 he was head master of St. Mark's 
School at Southboro, Mass. Afterwards he was Professor 
of Latin in Union College. These are his chief works 
and positions, although he did very much, and was very 
highly esteemed as a writer and teacher. His death oc- 
curred on the twelfth of September, 1891, a month after 
the death of his brother James Russell Lowell.

eminent man were yjoih singularly fitted for his compan-

tiful poems. Her husband graduated from Harvard in 
1838, and his whole life in detail has become so much the 
property of the world at large that it is unnecessary to 
add anything to what has been written. His poems and 
prose works will live in the memory of all who read them ; 
few are born to fill such eminent positions. Statesman, 
diplomat, litterateur, poet, essayist, critic and professor ! 
All these he filled and when his earthly career was ended 
in August, 1891, of none could it be more truly said the 
whole world mourned his loss.

Since the commencement of this genealogy many addi- 
tional facts have been received which have made it much 
larger than originally expected while by no means mak- 
ing it as complete as most family records. As the at- 
tempt was only to gather such records as were to be had 
without a prolonged research it will at once be seen that 
the purpose of the C()mi)iler has ])een fully met. It is 
proper to note that Mr. Henry Fitz Gilbert Waters has 
discovered recently that the first wife of Nathaniel Spar- 
hawk, the emigrant, was Mary Ainger, of Dedham, Essex 
Co., England.

GENEALOGY OF THE SPARHAWK FAMILY. 109 



THE GOOD PHYSICIAN. 



Written in memory of Dr. Thomas Sparhawk. 



By Miss Margaret Winslow. 

I. 

I see him on his rounds 

Within the village bounds, 

His patient horse at every humble door 

Where crammed in stifling dens, 

Tiie foul, dark factory pens. 

Lie, loathed by dainty sense, the suffering poor. 

II. 

Not loathed by that pure love, 

Warm from the light above 

Hastening to spend for them his heavenly gift ; 

Like one who closely trod 

The foot-prints of his God — 

Body and soul alike, from death to lift. 

III. 
I see him gently raise, 
The infant, frail of days, 
In manly arms, asjtender as his heart ; 
I see the mother laid 
On soft couch, freshly made 
By hands well used to act a woman's part. 

IV. 

I see the aged soothed 

The young head softly smoothed ; 

The horny hand grasped brotherly and warm ; 

I see the loved home hearth, 

The hospitable mirth 

Left night by night, to breast the wintry storm. 

V. 

Far over hill and plain, 

Through darkness, mist and rain, 

Through biting cold and clouds of drifting suoav 

Oft for no other mead 

Than His who sent the need 

Faithful and fearless still, I see him go. 



110 GENEALOGY OF THE SPARHAWK FAMILY. 

VI. 

I secjliim pause at last ; 

That life-long service past, 

A soldier in liis duty stricken down ; 

Yet beams the noble face, 

Serene in passive grace, 

The hoary hair of righteousness its crown. 

VII. 
I see, in lastjrepose. 
That smile, where softly glows 
The fair, bright sunshine, stooping to embrace, 
Like blessings long since stored 
In hearts now round him poured 
From lowliest homes — that;pure and saiut-like face. 

VIII. 

I see the reverent throng. 

The aged and the young, 

The rich, the poor, Avho press around his bier; 

I mark the heaving breast, 

The low sob half suppressed, 

The manly grief, and woman's tender tear. 

IX. 

And with the eye of faith. 

His trust in that which saith 

"Come, blessed of my Father, who have given 

Food to my hungering poor, 

Health to my sick and sore" 

I see a king within the courts of heaven. 

X. 

I see the crown of light ! 

I know his garment bright ! 

I touch his golden sceptre of command ; 

But whence yon garland green, 

With leaves of silvery sheen 

And fragrant breath, that blooms within his hand? 

XL 

prize ! than robe or crown 

Or sceplre of renown 

More blessed of the Father and the Son — 

The leaves of lieavenly life. 

To heal tlie nation's strife, 

Not for himself, but myriads, he hath won.
